How to Lace DC Shoes

By Ainsley Patterson

DC shoes are popular among the extreme sport crowd and can be purchased at most skate shops. They generally are laced in a way that requires the wearer to tie the shoes, and there are a couple different ways that they can be laced. They usually come with two pairs of laces, and you can use one or both pairs to lace your shoes. It is all about making your shoes unique.

Criss-Cross

Thread the laces through the bottom two holes of the shoes with an equal amount of lace on each side of the shoe.

Bring the left lace to the next hole on the right side and thread it through, then bring the right lace to the next left hole and thread it through.

Continue to criss-cross the laces, working up the holes, threading them through loosely until you reach the top of the shoe and all the holes have been threaded.

Adjust the looseness of the laces until there is only enough lace left at the top of the shoe to tie two knots in the laces to keep them from coming undone. Tie two knots in each side of the lace.

Straight Across

Thread the laces through the bottom two holes of the shoes, top down, with an equal amount of lace on each side of the shoe.

Move one lace up to the next hole on the same side that it is on and thread it through from the bottom up to the top, straight across, and then down from the top to the bottom.

Move the other lace up two holes on the same side of the shoe that it is on and thread it through from the bottom up to the top straight across and then from the top down to the bottom.

Continue to lace the shoe in this manner until both laces make it up to a top hole. It may take a couple of attempts to get it right, depending on the number of holes that your DC shoes have.

Adjust the looseness of the laces until there is only enough lace left at the top of the shoe to tie two notes in the laces to keep them from coming undone. Tie two knots in each side of the lace.
